From April 29 to May 4, 1992, people took to the streets of South Central Los Angeles to protest the acquittal of the four LAPD officers who brutally beat Rodney King. 25 years later, police reforms remains a hotly debated issue.
Civil rights attorney Connie Rice, police officer Anwar Sanders, and UCLA law professors Devon Carbado and Beth Colgan discuss the efficacy of consent decrees and other police reform policies including bias training, body cameras, and community policing.
